Blizzard Bloghop

Blizzard  Bloghop 2010 hosted by Household 6 Diva

My name is Sarah and I'd like to welcome you to my little corner of the blogsphere. I love bloghops and I discovered this one through Hallee, of Hallee the Homemaker (who has the BEST hummus recipe around!). I guess this weekend is Blissdom in Nashville and many of the best bloggers around are there... to be honest, I would find that totally intimidating - I'm a bit shy and would find the crowd totally overwhelming. I don't pretend to have an amazing blog, this is just a bit about me, my life and the things that make me happy.

I'm 38 and living in Canada, where I was born and raised. I used to be a "big city" girl (at least by birth) and 7 years ago, we moved to a small town, which really feels more like home. I'm a mom to two littles, Pk who is a feisty 3 year old daughter and Baby Bean, my 7 month old son. I'm married to my best friend - we've been together since 1991 and married since 1999.

I'm not great at making decisions and so my blog tends to meander all over the place, usually focused on what's on my mind at the moment. I'd say I'm pretty traditional and domestic in my interests. You'll see some crafty stuff (mostly knitting, scrapbooking and holiday decor stuff), cooking (I LOVE trying new recipes), parenting (I'm not a homeschooler but I once saw the term "after-schooler" and I love that - I'm trying to round out my children and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE doing crafts together) and some posts about my faith (I'm a Christian who, in the past, hasn't been very good about talking about my faith and my blog is a good place to practice). I'm also a big reader (Christian materials, mysteries of every kind, with a bit of chicklit thrown in). Every so often, I will get on my soapbox about something that I'm pondering and for those, I apologize ahead of time. Mostly, though, I just like connecting up with other moms and getting great ideas for ways to be happy.

If you do stop by, I'd love it if you left me a little comment so I can return the visit. Happy bloghopping!


  1. Wow! We do have a lot in common! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I look forward getting to know you better through your blog. Have an awesome evening!

  2. following...yes, second grade is a fun age!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! We started out as after-schoolers too :) We started out in a large city but now live in a very small town on 50 acres and love it.

  4. I am from big cities and now live over an hour away from the Twin Cities in a rural town. It's sooo different. I'm all over the place with my blogging too. Wish I could just corner myself sometimes. I think I'd find Blissdom overwhelming because I don't think I'm on the same playing field as those other bloggers. Who knows...maybe some day.

  5. Hi Sarah

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've always lived in the suburbs but the hustle and bustle is only 10 miles away and, lately, even where I am is becoming really developed. I kind of think I'd love small town life. My husband went to school in Canada and we both have relatives up there. We dream of making a winter visit one year so the rest of us can see snow!

    Good to meet another mom and look forward to checking out your blog in more detail

    God bless!

  6. So glad to have met you - I`m in Canada and have been in a small town for 7 years after the city all my life, too! I wouldn`t go back for anything now - I mean, you can`t look out your kitchen window and see horses walking by in the city!

  7. Hey there! I'm stopping in from the Blog Hop! I'm looking forward to following your blog! :-)
